Gulp!

“No thanks, I couldn’t eat another bite.”

Guys, some of those doggie bags, er,  15 boxes of documents Hair Füror didn’t eat or flush, contained documents marked Top Secret:

Some of the White House documents that Donald Trump improperly took to his Mar-a-Lago residence were clearly marked as classified, including documents at the “top secret” level, according to two people familiar with the matter…

…While it was unclear how many classified documents were among those received by the National Archives and Records Administration, some bore markings that the information was extremely sensitive and would be limited to a small group of officials with authority to view such highly classified information, the two people familiar with the matter said.

And that’s a big deal right there. The Archives consulted the DOJ, which told the Archives to have its inspector general look into the matter. So the hot potato has been passed back and forth.

It’s not clear that the Archives  inspector general has AGAIN passed it to the DOJ, which would require Attorney General Merrick Garland —who seems determined to avoid this sort of thing— to decide whether to open a politically charged investigation.

Or maybe, as usual, Hair Füror escapes accountability and like impeachment, the official records act is more symbolic than actionable? Even for Top Secret thievery.

    Not defending this golden painted turd, but if he removed those while still in office, since he had the power to declassify anything, how can he be prosecuted? Make me wrong please.

      There have to be records of it as declassified. Security Mark-up is hugely convoluted with multiple redundancies, so even if a President just blurts it out, it has to be officially noted as Unclassified, dated, and signed, and the other parties have to be briefed that this is now unclassified so they can declassify the same information in corresponding documents.

    Not charging someone for crimes because of their political prominence is also politicizing the process. So M Garland needs to shit or get off the pot.

  4. Silly Rabbit Tengrain! Laws are for kids Democrats!

    (I’ll note that Sandy berger was fined something like $50,000, sentenced to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service, lost his Secret clearance and have up his law license for taking three classified documents out of the National Archives without authorization.

    Also it is irrelevant if TFG took those papers when he was the president; he ain’t the president any more…

    Packed in secret, chased aides away…
    Found this quote when looking for when he packed (before he moved out, obvi)

    Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich told the Post that “a normal and routine process is being weaponized by anonymous, politically motivated government sources to peddle Fake News,” and the National Archives could “credibly dispute this false reporting” but isn’t.

    Behold, the shriek of the cockroach running for cover as it describes the situation around the all-too-famous Hillary’s e-mails.

    Barrack Obama would have been executed for doing something like this. Convince me otherwise.
